The article by Eric Peters leaves out several important aspects of higher fuel economy vehicles — those powered by hybrid powertrains and clean Diesel engines.
Currently only Honda and Toyota market vehicles with hybrid powertrains, but Ford is due to begin production of a hybrid Escape later this year, and more will be coming. In fact, Toyota has plans to offer hybrid powertrain options across the board in the future. These vehicles will have an excellent chance at attaining 36+ mpg. Large pickup trucks most likely will not be candidates for these powertrains, however.p>Clean Diesel engines is the other technology to watch within the coming decade. With better combustion systems, low-sulfur fuel, and efficient exhaust aftertreatment, these engines will begin to make inroads in the market in the next 4 to 8 years. Diesel engines are already a favorite in the large pickup market. br> — Rich Belaire

In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
